Ibanez splits lip, chips tooth after foul ball

NEW YORK – Yankees outfielder Raul Ibanez suffered a lacerated lip and a broken tooth attempting to evade a foul ball in the ninth inning of New York’s 4-2 victory over the White Sox on Sunday.

Ibanez was in the dugout during the top of the ninth inning when he ducked away from a line drive, hitting his mouth on the Yankees bench. He was immediately led away by head athletic trainer Steve Donohue.

The Yankees said that Ibanez was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital and will not make the charter flight with the team to Florida. He is expected to join the club in time for Monday’s 7:10 p.m. ET game against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

Ahhh it’s good to see our good buddy FarnworthLESS again. He remembered how much $$$$ the Yankees wasted on him in the past and repaid them back with interest.

What’s with the Yankees in the Trop field? Are they spooked or what? They suddenly freeze and make stupid mistakes that they don’t normally make. Loss of CC and Andy is starting to cost them. Of course the old hitting bugaboo shows its head especially with RISP. Losing games in late innings. Rays have a great starting rotation and that’s why they’re going to battle the Yankees right to the end. Yankees bull pen has imploded as well. Do they get distracted in Tampa and enjoy too much night life? Don’t know what it is but they better get it figured out soon. Now they have to depend on Phelps to get one win for the series. Next comes the Sox and the Yankees don’t play the Sox well either.

Rarely do I criticize Tex’s defense but that error on the Rays 4th run was absolutely inexcuseable. Come on Tex you can play better first than what you displayed on that play.

Right Seeknay. CAme home late so didn’t see the game on TV but saw the Yankees were up 3-2 in the 7th with DRob pitching so looked like they had a good chance to win. What’s up with DRob lately since he returned from the injury. He’s not the same pitcher. And Boone hasn’t been looking good lately either. Are these guys tired? What’\s gone wrong with the bull pen? Garcia obviously pitched a good game as a substitute for CC or Andy but the bull pen let them down again. And the offence wasn’t great either. No home runs so the Yankees haven’t found a way to win other than with the long ball. Who’s pitching tomorrow? We’ve got a good lead but don’t want to lose too much before the ASG. Should have CC back after the break. And maybe Freddy can do an alright job until Andy gets back or the Yankees can pick up a good starter in a trade.

A game like this tonight is a game that really pisses me off. It’s a game that the Yankees ought to have well in hand. Instead they are down late. Hate these kind of games.

Getting hit by the ball may have been better! I hope all turns out OK.
